Solidago caesia (Wreath Goldenrod) [20 Seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend these only for gardeners who have experience with seeds that benefit from or require a chilling period to germinate. The easiest approach is to surface-sow the seeds in a pot in fall to early winter, setting them outdoors in a spot protected from mice so they can get a natural chilling period and then germinate when conditions are right in spring. If you sow much after December, give the pot an artificial chilling period of about 2 months.

It’s easy to find spring flowers for shady gardens but not so simple to find color for fall. Wreath goldenrod (Solidago caesia) deserves a place at the top of the list for a number of reasons: besides its shade tolerance and its bright yellow autumn blooms, it’s valuable for pollinators and other wildlife; it’s a clump-former, not a spreader; it’s an easily manageable size (usually 2 to 3 feet tall); and it’s native (to much of eastern and central North America). It’s also known as blue-stemmed goldenrod because of its dark purple-blue stems, which tend to arch gracefully as the flowers form. Wreath goldenrod can grow in full sun and bloom most abundantly there; in nature, it generally grows in partial to full shade and can even tolerate dry shade. These seeds are from plants that grow wild here at Hayefield in Bucks County, PA. Perennial; Zones 3 to 9.

Collected in late October 2022. At least 20 seeds. PA ecotype.
